Flexible partnership with your clients: the double diamond of coaching

The ICF core competencies “Establishes and maintains agreements” and “Maintains presence” ask the coach to partner with the client not only in what the client wants to talk about but also in how the coaching process is run.

Coaches would like to be able to serve the client by providing a clear process and by helping the clients to focus, yet they don’t
want to narrow the focus so much that it hinders exploration and deeper learning.

Listen to Kirsten Dierolf, MCC talk about the five steps that help you partner with your client in a fruitful coaching session.
